Following the breakthrough success of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road," Harlem's own Dave East took to social media to throw shade at the controversial record that topped the Billboard Hot 100, calling the record "super wack with a cape on it."
Responding to that criticism is now the 20-year-old Atlanta artist himself, who was recently interviewed by the Zach Sang Show where he promptly said: "it's like I have the No. 1 song in the country, I do not give a f*** about what Dave East is saying."
Meanwhile, as the Billy Ray Cyrus remix helped "Old Town Road" shatter Drake's single week streaming record, fans are still awaiting another previously teased remix with fellow ATL native Young Thug.
As far as numbers go, "Old Town Road" is now in its third week atop the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.
In the above interview, the conversation shifts towards Dave East at 39:15.

Although Lil Nas X recently topped the Billboard Hot 100 with his breakthrough single "Old Town Road," one artist that appears to not be amused by its success is Dave East, who recently took to social media to make his thoughts on the record known.
"That f***** 'Old Town Road' s*** is fucking wack," East said to the camera, before adding that he doesn't know "what the f*** is going on with hip-hop." From there, he let it be known that he wasn't hating, however, his opinion is "that the s*** is wack with a cape on it. It’s super wack!"
With that said, Lil Nas X's recent success has appeared to have been embraced by hip-hop overall, with multiple artists coming to his defense after his track was controversially taken off the Hot Country Songs chart for "not embracing enough elements" of the genre. Additionally, the song has also been remixed by Young Thug as well as Billy Ray Cyrus, the latter of whom helped the 20-year-old Atlanta artist break Drake's single week streaming record that was previously held by God's Plan.
